The surgery is equipped to perform a wide variety of procedures so that you can have all your treatment done in the one place. Whether you’re after a check-up and clean, general treatments, implants or cosmetic dentistry and tooth whitening, we are here to help. We also have various options available to help decrease any dental anxiety including Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and various other forms of sedation.

We all pay lots of money every year for our Private Health Fund insurance and you should make sure you get the maximum benefits from it. Some helpful Hints

  • Your Private health fund limits and allowances reset on January 1 every year, so make sure you plan well.
  • Ring up your fund yearly to see what is and isn’t included in your policy and see if you can get a better deal
  • Most health funds provide a larger subsidy for preventative treatment like a general check-up and clean, so you should make sure you make use of that facility.
  • If you think you are going to need Crowns, Root canals or more comprehensive dental work you should make sure you have Major Dental covered in your policy

It is a good idea to check with your private health fund because it will depend on the policy that you have but with a lot of policies with BUPA and HBF you will find childrens dentistry is GAP free or very close to it.  So whether it be for a clean or for a custom made mouth guard just pop in and we can do a quote for you, you might find it will cost you nothing. We also provide HICAPS quoting facilities.  So once you have had a consult and exam with Dr Mendelsohn the team at the front desk can run your treatment plan through HICAPS and give you an estimate of what your health fund will cover.  Then we can also help by putting a payment plan in place if you require it.
